Yale Materials Handling Corp. announces a new solution to help promote social distancing measures as businesses reopen, using sensors embedded in tags that buzz when personnel get within six feet of one another. Employees wear the electronic tags on a lanyard, similar to building or equipment access cards, offering a minimally intrusive solution that only makes its presence known when providing a proximity alert. The solution uses ultra-wideband technology for tag-to-tag sensing and communication, requiring no infrastructure, such as Wi-Fi or cellular network coverage. The devices require a unique, custom sequence to power down, a feature meant to prevent employees from selectively turning off the system to avoid enforcement.
